Volunteers get training on red tide identification

Although there is no red tide off South Padre Island, conditions are primed for one to “bloom” due to current drought conditions and extreme heat, officials said.

Nothing can be done to prevent a red tide event from happening, officials said. But early warning signs and monitoring play a crucial role in alerting the public and setting a plan of action to handle the coastal threat.

Volunteers interested in red tide monitoring gathered Tuesday for a training session in algae bacteria which may affect wildlife, tourism, fishing, pets and people.
